Came with 3 other people for lunch on a weekday and noticed that it started getting busy at around 12.30.
Dining area is spacious, well-lit and comfortable, with contemporary Chinese style decor to match, like a typical modern upscale restaurant in metropolitan cities in China.
Good service with attentive, polite staff.
We ordered:Ma lan tou
With mild seasoned filling, a mellow
hint of sesame oil, served cold. A good start.Spring onion pancakes
: not the usual airy puff pastry-life pancake, but more like flatbread, and deep fried. It may be different, but enjoyable in its own way, with greasy crunch mouthfuls.Dan Dan noodles
Ordered without any specifications on spiciness, yet the soup base was still very
spicy and left a stinging sensation in the mouth even after the meal. The oily soup surface looked like it was doused with a bottle of La You (oil-based chili sauce). Noodles itself was not particularly exceptional
, perhaps it was spoiled by the overwhelmingly ho
t soup.Steamed vegetarian dumplings
Skin is just right, neither too thick nor too thin, with a hearty chopped vegetable mixture. Will order again next time.Regular Xiao Long Bao
Pork filling was juicy, very pleasantly sweet
and skin doesn't break upon picking up.Vegeable and meat Xiao Long Bao
Even better than the regular xiao long bao - slight addition of chopped leafy greens complements the juicy, soft pork filling very well. Even my meat-loving friend enjoyed it!Sweet sticky rice roll
Particularly mentionable is the chopped peanut, white sesame and white sugar mixture, combining to give much texture
and flavors that match
well. The thoroughly
deep-fried thin breadstick (you tiao), resulting in a in the gives extra crunch. Will try the savory rice roll next time. Double-side fried noodles with shredded pork dipping soup
Freshly deep fried ramen was drained well so it doesn't feel greasy at all. Soup was particularly enjoyable, looked like hot and sour soup but plainly savory
, with a consistency just right for dipping
. Lots of julienned white bamboo shoots and bell peppers and soft shredded pork.Egg white scallop fried rice
A very deceiving
name, with minimal scallops
- it might as well have been called egg white fried rice! Otherwise, the medium grain white rice was tossed well with the broken egg white, chopped carrots and siu tong choi (looks like pak choy but less crunchy, with a greener stem) Definitely not worth ordering.
Noticed they call themself the Dim Sum expert of Shanghai
in the takeout bag; perhaps that explains their good dumplings and sticky rice roll, but the fried rice and dan dan noodles were not up to standards.
A good choice for a very comfortable experience, with good service and seating, but the quality of the food really depends on what you order.
